Blacks Beach

Blacks Beach, Mackay Area

Located at Mackay's Northern Beaches, Black's Beach is Mackay's longest continuous beach, approximately six kilometres in length. It is a 15 minute drive from Mackay's city centre. Head north on the Bruce Highway and turn right onto the Mackay Bucasia Road, following the Black's Beach signage. A car park and walkway to the beach can be found on Coral Drive.

The beach is dotted with beachfront accommodation options, ranging from caravan and camping to self-contained, motel-style and resort. Guests wake each morning to the relaxing sound of the waves rolling onto the sandy beach.

Popular with walkers, Black's Beach is a pet-friendly beach, however it is not an off-leash area and therefore all pets must be kept on their lead and under control. Enjoy a family picnic on the sand.

Bream and whiting are caught off the beach, and excellent fishing can be found at the southern point near the mouth of McCready's Creek.
